Why Save Animals?
You might have noticed the huge increase in animal societies and resuce organizations. This is a direct result of the increase in compassion that is being felt by the people of this planet. This compassion is demanding expression through advocacies for cleaning up pollution, cleaning plastic from the oceans and even demands to reduce use of fossil fuels. This is just the very beginning of a tidal wave of awakening and realization that we share this planet with other life forms that have as much right to live as we do. And for whatever reason, we feel a strong connection to camelids and our lives have drawn us to care about these beautiful creatures.
Why Make a Donation?
Not everyone is in a position to care for animals, nor perhaps have they the experience or inclination to do so. Donating is a way of sharing the burden of cleaning up the mess of human existence and caring for those we might have harmed along the way. The costs of running a large animal shelter are considerable and the hours required to manage all of the animals and all of the enquiries often stretch beyond the hours available. It is a passion that rises from the soul and often demands everything one has and more. We get down on our knees and beg for a penny here and a saving there to try and make ends meet. And we appreciate every word of encouragement and every penny that is offered.
What we do
Situations can suddenly arise in life that pull the rug from under one’s feet. Illness, accident and family situations are not uncommon that mean animals that were previously loved, no longer have anyone to care for them. There is never judgement. Give us a call. We can help.
Age or infirmity creeps up and requires that you downsize your home, meaning your camelid companions cannot come with you. Maybe they are elderly or you wish to ensure they receive the special care they deserve. The Llama Sanctuary is equipped to provide for special needs.
Finding a Home
It is not possible to keep all of the llamas that come to us, but we have connections and work hard to find the most appropriate placement for the younger and healthy animals. If you need help in finding a suitable home for your herd of llamas or alpacas, let us know. Elderly and those animals quiring special care remain at The Llama Sanctuary.
Emergency Evacuation & Respite
If you are evacuated due to forest fire, flood or other natural disaster, we may be able to assist in roviding a home for your alpacas and llamas. Other temporary care taking needs can also be provided. If we can help, we will. Just ask.
What Drives Us
Rescue, rehabilitation, re-homing and retirement of llamas and alpacas in need.
If you would like to get involved and help at The Llama Sanctuary, we would love to hear from you. Serious enquiries only. This is not a holiday camp!
